Truly a gem, this detailed examination of machine-produced toy automobiles "made in America or imported from Europe" also is an evolutionary account of the American autombile and its manufacturers. Gottschalk, an authority on the subject and owner of a world-famous toy auto collection, groups the toys by material (cast iron, pressed steel, etc.) and major function (motorcycles, buses, taxis, etc.). Almost everything for the period, from pleasure cars and utility trucks to penny toys, games, and advertising premiums, is covered. U.S. patent issue dates, histories of American and European toy manufacturers, and a bibliography are included. Extensively researched, well documented, and copiously illustrated, though marred by occasional hazy photosa good buy for the price. Highly recommended. Ann E. Cohen, Broome Cty. P.L., Binghamton,
